Registration for the Spring Session is going on Now!
The New England Collegiate Officiating Camp has 3 specific segments designed for:
We would like to welcome all prospective College Officials from our High School ranks to consider joining us this year at our 2015 edition of the N.E. Collegiate Officiating Camp to be conducted on April 18th and 19th at The University Sports Complex in Hanover, Massachusetts. This camp has a segment which is specifically designed for prospective Mens College Officials interested in pursuing Collegiate Basketball Officiating. The New England Collegiate Officiating Camp is committed to the training, development, exposure and recruitment of existing ECAC Division 3 College Officials, as well as, High School Officials and prospective candidates for future consideration to our ECAC Officiating staff. This camp is run in conjunction with the prestigious and elite "Northeast Hoops Festival ", showcasing the finest high school players in the East. The camps mission is to provide Officials instruction, training, development, but more importantly, exposure to ECAC’s Coordinators/Supervisors Larry Last, Mike Stephens and Rich Antonelli. The “exposure aspect” of our camp is our main focus and has helped give many Officials the opportunity to develop and interact while being seen by ECAC’s Coordinators. Last year the ECAC brought on 16 new Officials, all of which were a direct result of the exposure received during the ECAC tryout segment at our New England Collegiate Officiating Camp. The ECAC tryout for our 2015/16 ECAC Officiating staff will be conducted at our camp by me, and ECAC Coordinators Mike Stephens, and Rich Antonelli and assisted by representatives from CBOA. It will always be my intent to run this camp with a MINIMAL COST ($150) to the Official while providing the very best player talent for our campers to officiate. This is a day camp, which will allow us to keep the cost manageable, but overnight accommodations are available for those in need at a special camp rate. Lodging at the Comfort INN, 850 Hingham Street, Rockland, Ma has reserved blocks of rooms for our campers at a reduced rate. TK O’Shea’s, located next door to Comfort INN, will provide our campers and staff with food and drinks for our evening social. All games/courts are 3 man officiated, observed, and critiqued. We will have video courts for all our officials and provide DVD’s to all from our A/V staff. Classroom instruction is always a highlight of any camp and we will provide some spirited discussion. The video game film session will be provided by our camp clinicians and Collegiate Officials. My staff of observers and clinicians will include some of the most experienced and respected collegiate officials in New England, as well as, ECAC Coordinators Mike Stephens (one of the nation’s finest D1 Officials), Rich Antonelli and myself, Larry Last, Director of Men & Women's Basketball Officiating for the ECAC. The opportunity to get this type of exposure by ECAC’s Coordinators/Supervisors, in a setting such as the University Sports Complex in Hanover, Ma. will prove most valuable to any prospective candidate considering College Officiating. Our goal is to be one of the finest camps to work, while remaining an affordable option. Please consider joining us this year and taking advantage of our efforts to give you something of absolute value. For those interested in trying out for ECAC please complete the ECAC tryout application as well. The ECAC tryout application is separate and ($75) made payable to ECAC.
